Your new visiting conditions in all sincerity

  • A reorganized reception for your safety: management and respect of the rules of distancing as soon as you arrive on the Oceanographic Museum’s forecourt and materialization of differentiated queues if you have just bought your tickets at the ticket offices or if you already have a ticket bought online.
  • Limited number of visitors for a smoother visit: the Oceanographic Museum has reduced its simultaneous capacity by 50% and reserves the right to close its cash desks in the event of excessive crowds.
  • Wearing a mask is compulsory from 5 years old for more security: come masked. No entry to the Museum will be allowed without wearing a protective mask, which is compulsory for the entire duration of the visit. In case you forget, masks will be available for sale at the outside ticket booths and at the reception.
  • Aone-way visitor route for easier discovery: a one-way circulation system has been set up in most of the museum’s spaces to facilitate the management of flows and respect for the rules of distancing.
  • Revisited animations: our essential animations such as the “Touch Pool” or “ImmerSEAve 360°” have been adapted to allow you to “Experience the Ocean” in complete safety, particularly by limiting contact.
  • Barrier measures: health and safety instructions have been posted or reminded in the various areas of the Museum with stickers on the floor and information panels. Hydro-alcohol gel dispensers are also available throughout the course.
